    When is it time to repalce the tires

    That is what I do. I never could guess when a tire will fail. The belts provide strength. If they have enough tread and the tube can hold air use them. I would not run down the road at 15 mph with a bad tire, but in a field at 5 mph the tractor will fall in the dirt.
